glad you're still planning to eventually move to CO2. not my choice of course but, from what you've said in here, you seem to really like CO2 better than TaXes for your kind of lifestyle (not taking the drugs here :mrgreen: ).

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Man I’m glad I don’t work at a dealership. Cars come in over night and weekends (holiday ones and regular) and placed haphazardly around the lot (i assume, cuz there’s 4 days of deliveries) and then you get in to a mess! Also who names the car colors? Symphony (Hyundai) is not grey, should be brown...

Re: Frustrations of a new-ish first timer

To reduce the force required to shift quickly, make sure you are fully depressing the clutch pedal. Just as a rule of thumb, the clutch should not start to engage until the pedal pad moves maybe 25-25 mm up from the downstop.
